New York's Garment District is a dense commercial neighborhood in the heart of Manhattan where the American fashion industry did much of its business for decades. At one time, all aspects of apparel production went through here, from design to manufacturing, sales, and distribution. In the 1950s, you couldn't walk down a block between Seventh and Ninth Avenues, from 34th Street to 42nd Street, without being nearly run down by a renegade rack of clothing or clobbered by a swinging bolt of fabric.
The New York Times has a list of overused words and phrases that have over time been rendered meaningless or cliché. Thus, NYT journalists are discouraged from using terms like “ironic,” “icon,” and the "the one percent." Our suggestion for the paper of record: Ban the word “hipster.”This isn’t the first time that the NYT has “discovered Brooklyn,” but today's piece in the Style section is one out-of-touch anthropological dispatch too far.
Joerg and Maria Koch are in Paris at Silencio, the semi-private nightclub conceived by David Lynch. It's a subterranean labyrinth of rooms, intended to be a place for creative types to exchange ideas, like the Parisian literary salons of the 18th century or Zurich's Cabaret Voltaire, where Dadaists hung out in the early 1900s, or Studio 54. But tonight it's simply the best party in town—perhaps the best party on the planet—and the Kochs are hosting. It's a Paris Fashion Week get-down.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
